Scorpios are among the most loyal and devoted of friends. Why? Simple, because they are also selective, choosing only like-minded people, those who have the same general ideas about life. It is very easy for them to become possessive and jealous of these friends.
They are very difficult to convince, and you will have to spend a lot of time to gain their trust. They are very suspicious and unwilling to share their thoughts and emotions with people. If you hurt them, they may poison you. However, their revenge will be swift and painful.
1) They are very open and willing to share the joys of life with their friends.
2) You can tell them even your darkest secrets that you don't normally tell anyone.
3) You won't have to worry about people talking behind your back.
4) They have your back no matter what the situation.
5) They are not quitters and they don't leave you either.
Not only do they hate superficiality and ignorance, but they have eclectic interests. This brings them into contact with many different people from many different cultures.
Friendships abound, preferably those that bring new experiences, new knowledge and a better understanding of the world.
Most of the time they will seem cold and disinterested. In reality, many people believe that Scorpios are aloof and detached by nature, that they do things for themselves without thinking of others.
However, this is far from reality. Although they are complex and difficult to understand, they are also open and willing to share the joys of life with anyone.
You will have to work hard to maintain and nurture the friendship your Scorpio has established. These natives are very involved, they care very much, and you must show your appreciation without holding anything back. Praise them, compliment their passion and vitality, and strive to earn their trust.
They do not befriend just anyone. Firstly, because not everyone can live up to their expectations, and secondly because not many have the patience to put up with their analysis and observations. In short, they are very passionate and enthusiastic, almost exaggeratedly so.
Scorpios are, shall we say, extremely direct and straightforward. You will never see them fidgeting or overthinking things. They will get straight to the point, tell you what they believe, what they don't like and what they want to do. Besides, they already know enough to make an informed decision. They have already analysed and observed everything.
These real characters are indeed serious and responsible, and set out to make their own way in life. But they also know how to have fun, how to entertain themselves and find interesting games to play.
All to lighten the mood, so that others find joy and happiness. They will talk about their lives, make jokes and puns, and add a little spice to the stories, to make them even better.
You can tell your Scorpio friends almost anything, even your darkest secrets that you don't normally tell anyone. This will bring them even closer to you. As for their confidentiality, you can be sure they won't betray your trust. If they don't understand the importance of secrets, then no one does.
One thing you should know is that they are interested in deep discussions, deeper emotional connections, not superficial or bland friendships. They could have had that a long time ago. They think long term.
Scorpio natives will not associate with boring people who have nothing to offer. We are talking about values, principles, deep ideas and potential adventures.
If you are dull and tedious, if you don't know how to have fun or lack the skills to keep up, you will have to improve.
Try to be superior, respect your character and earn extra attribute points. Level up, learn some new skills that will impress your Scorpio friends. They want you to contribute something to the friendship.
How do you get a Scorpio's attention? Actually, it's quite simple. You have to appear independent, free-thinking and dynamic. Take them canoeing, bungee jumping or just to a sporting competition. That will get their blood flowing, and they'll see how much fun it is to have you around.
If you manage to take them somewhere new or make them experience something they didn't know, all the better for you.
Be aware of cultural points of interest, even art will be a very nice addition to the table. In the end, your loyalty and devotion will kick in, but you will also know when to stop if there is no appreciation.
Scorpios live on the edge, at the point of no return, with one foot in the abyss. For them, danger is nothing more than the promise of glory, of great rewards, the chance to accumulate knowledge, to have fun and to step into the future.
You won't have to worry about them talking behind your back or holding back when they are with you, for whatever reason.
They will always be frank, honest and tell it like it is. If something is wrong, you can be sure they will say so. Plus, they'll make you laugh, so it's double business.
Who else but an air sign like Gemini could be Scorpio's best friend? Water and air are a perfect match, almost. They are passionate and intense together, and are so in tune with each other that they even forget about the outside world.
They are very direct with each other, and neither should back down in this regard.
Although Scorpios have very high expectations and tend to pay a lot of attention to who they befriend, once they are confident that it is a good choice, then they will really hit it off. They will try to nurture the friendship further and further.
Scorpio natives may appear tough and incapable of being hurt, but they can be disappointed and hurt by many things, especially by emotional attacks. Don't say anything without considering their feelings. And look out for them, ask if something is wrong, watch their attitude.
They will make your life so much better through the endless adventures, the musings on the mysteries of life and the ever-challenging way of life.
From a romantic point of view, going for a Scorpio will be the biggest decision of your life. It will be difficult, all-consuming and extremely fun. You will make a lot of extraordinary memories with them around.
